Browns, Steelers injury reports: Some players improve on Friday

Browns Wire

The Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers put out their first injury reports of the week on Thursday. With their matchup on Monday Night Football, the reports come a day later this week.

The Week 17 matchup between the bottom two teams in the AFC North is also between two teams that have a reasonable shot at winning the division as well. A win by the Cincinnati Bengals over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday would eliminate the Browns and make the Steelers playoff chase far more difficult.

Going into the game, the two teams had quite a few players not practicing on the first injury report. There were some improvements on Friday’s report:

Browns

  • Troy Hill – DNP
  • Kareem Hunt – DNP Thursday, Limited on Friday
  • Malik Jackson – DNP Thursday, Limited on Friday
  • John Johnson III – DNP
  • Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah – DNP Thursday, returned on Friday
  • Myles Garrett – Limited
  • Greg Newsome II – Limited Thursday, full practice on Friday
  • J.C. Tretter – Limited Thursday, DNP Friday

Steelers

  • Ben Roethlisberger – DNP Thursday, full practice on Friday
  • Buddy Johnson – DNP
  • Kendrick Green – DNP
  • Pressley Harvin III – DNP – Personal, non-injury related

We will keep an eye on the injury report through the holiday weekend to see if any of the players start participating in practice or any new injuries pop up.
